The cautionary advice comes in the wake of a terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday, where 28-year-old white supremacist Brenton Tarrant, an Australian citizen, opened fire on worshippers during the Jumma prayer, killing 50 people and injuring 48 others.

Five people of Bangladeshi origin are among the victims of the attack, while three more people of Bangladeshi origin have been injured.
